According to the Anadolu Agency, UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres’ spokesman Stephane Dujarric confirmed receipt of the letter late on Wednesday. According to the news agency, Dujarric stated that the name change was effective “from the minute” the letter was received. After agreeing to a formal request from Ankara, Turkey will now be referred to as Türkiye at the United Nations.

As part of a rebranding drive begun by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan late last year, several international groups will be urged to change the name.

The move has elicited a mixed response online. While some government officials support it, others argue that it is a waste of time as the president prepares for elections next year in the midst of an economic crisis. It is usual for countries to rename themselves.
